New Jersey Youth Corps

Youth Corps logo

New Jersey Youth Corps is one of the largest youth service and conservation corps in the United States. Youth Corps is a year-round, voluntary program that engages young adults (ages 16 to 25) without a high school diploma in full-time community service, training, and educational activities. Guided by staff who serve as mentors and role models, teams of youth called "crews" carry out a wide range of service projects. In return for their efforts to restore and strengthen communities, Corpsmembers receive:

  • Education development in basic skills and assistance in obtaining a high school equivalency diploma or locally issued adult high school diploma
  • Life skills and employability skills instruction
  • Personal and career counseling to build self-esteem, clarify values, and develop leadership skills while developing a career portfolio
  • Transition services and continuing support services for transitioning to college, training, employment, or other national and domestic service opportunities
  • Community service opportunities, which develop positive employability skills while addressing unmet community needs. Corpsmembers receive a stipend while enrolled in Youth Corps
